Holiday with Matthew Mead!

red and white

YES. I’m thinking about Christmas. YES, I know it’s still October. I do this every year, and I don’t apologize for my GLEEEEEE. :)

I do blame my son – the older he gets, the more magical the season gets. This Halloween will be the most fun yet, and I’m over the moon excited to see how he takes in this Christmas.

We’ve been going through the holiday aisles at Lowe’s for weeks…and at Hobby Lobby for months. ;) I finally found The Polar Express at Target and we watched it for the first time on Monday – and it is simply fantastic.

Big. Fat. Sigh.

Bring on the holiday goodness!

Because I just couldn’t wait -- I’m bringing it for you this week! I was beyond thrilled when Matthew Mead decided to use one of my past projects as inspiration for one in his upcoming Holiday with Matthew Mead magazine.

The publication is quite literally hot off the presses as I speak…er…write:


As Matthew says –

“It’s 144 pages of holiday inspiration - featuring well-known and admired designers, bloggers and top-notch stories -- and printed on beautiful paper (while not drowning in ads!). We consider Holiday with Matthew Mead part book/part magazine - a publication that you will keep from year to year and add to your collection of Holiday decorating, crafting and cooking magazines and books.”


Ack – I cannot WAIT to see it!! Like I need more ways to get in the spirit.  :)

I’m so excited because I’ll have an extra copy I’m giving away to one of you!
